What I'm Packing & Where We're Going!!


I mentioned in Wednesday's post that we are headed to California at the end of next week, so I thought I would do a different type of post on the blog today talking all about what I'm packing and where we're headed! The picture above was taken in November on the last trip we took to South Africa, which to this day is one of my favorite places I've ever visited in the world. It was a truly life changing experience visiting that part of the world and seeing all of the animals out in the wild. More on that later, but let's get to our upcoming trip - CALIFORNIA! In May of 2016, we visited San Francisco and Napa with friends, which also happened to coincide with my 30th birthday! It's a trip I will never forget, and I highly recommend taking a wine country trip with a group of friends - SO much (maybe a little too much) FUN! 

Since that trip, we have wanted to go back to California and visit. I am one hundred percent a warm weather and sunshine type of girl. You probably laugh as you read that because who isn't?! But, I truly feel like I thrive in an environment that's sunny, warm, and full of gorgeous greenery! So, to say that I'm excited for this trip is an understatement! We are flying into San Francisco (Buddy's one request for the trip so that we can attend a baseball game) where we will spend two nights, then we are renting a car and making our way down the coastline, stopping at Big Sur (and who else knows where along the way), then making a stop in Laguna Beach for two nights, then finally LA for the remainder of the trip! 

I have a running list of restaurants, hotels, and places that I want to see after scouring my bestie's LA City Guide, which you can find here! I've mentioned Holly's website, The Hollyday, before on this blog, but her LA City Guide has been a lifesaver for me with this trip ahead of us! If there are any other spots or recommendations you have in mind, please do share and comment below or on my latest Instagram post! I would love to hear from you!! 

Below, I am sharing some things that I plan to take with me for the trip! I've been shopping for weeks, and I can't wait to share some great content with you all from our travels! XO
